Frequencies of mutations between reconstructed ancestor and descendant sequences of codons for metazoan globin chains show that natural selection guided protein evolution. Mutations which improved haemoglobin function were accepted at an accelerated rate in the first vertebrates. Rates decelerated after functional opportunities had been exploited.

Silent nucleotide substitutions and the molecular evolutionary clock.
Half of the nucleotide substitutions during the evolutionary divergence of genes in animals, bacteria, and viruses are silent changes. These result from an inherent biochemical property of DNA andExpand

Abstract Events in hemoglobin evolution are explored on phylogenetic trees constructed for α and β hemoglobin polypeptide chain amino acid sequences by the maximum parsimony method. They show that aExpand
Evolution of the Primary Structures of Primate and Other Vertebrate Hemoglobins
TLDR
It is thought that these genes evolve through the process of mutation and natural selection, resulting in the diversity of organisms in the world. Expand

TLDR
It was found that the number of arginine residues increased substantially in a short period of evolutionary time after gene duplication, and these amino acid changes probably produced the novel anti-pathogen function of ECP. Expand
Molecular Evolution Above the Species Level: Branching Pattern, Rates, and Mechanisms
TLDR
It is hypothesized that positive selection for differentiation of the chains produced by duplicated globin genes was responsible for greatly accelerated globin evolutionary rates, especially at sites acquiring cooperative functions, during the basal radiation of Gnathostomata and Tetrapoda. Expand

The divergence of species is accompanied by molecular changes in the primary structure of genes and their messenger RNA products. In the present chapter we consider the simplest of such changes,Expand
The estimation of differences in protein evolution rates
TLDR
Five protein families are discussed but data are few and selective, so that measures of evolution rate are uncertain, and studies in palaeontology based on numerically few, discrete data are also subject to uncertainty. Expand
Mammalian specific mouse genes are evolving faster than mouse genes conserved across other eukaryotic lineages.
TLDR
It is shown that genes conserved in eukaryota, coelomata, and bilateria, that is, proteins that arose earlier in evolution as compared to mammalia specific genes evolve slowly and are subjected to negative selection, supporting the notion that evolutionary rates progressively diminish with the age of a gene.

Calculating the rate of evolution in terms of nucleotide substitutions seems to give a value so high that many of the mutations involved must be neutral ones.

TLDR
Random gene frequency drift is playing an important role in determining the genetic structure of biological populations and genes in "living fossils" may be expected to have undergone as many DNA base substitutions as corresponding genes (proteins) in more rapidly evolving species. Expand

The model, in addition to explaining the experimentally observed proportions of 0-, 1-, 2- and 3-base amino-acid substitutions, resolves certain anomalies in the relationships of the tuna-human lineages with respect to other organisms. Expand
